covered? >> reporter: i do. general john allen, who was being investigated for what the pentagon called possibly inappropriate e-mails to socialite jill kelley, has now been cleared of wrongdoing. the e-mails were discovered as part of the investigation into the extramarital affair of cia director david petraeus. so, a lot of news, diane. >> so, that's over for him then? >> reporter: that is. >> all right, thank you, martha raddatz. >>> and in houston today, there was a terrifying scene at the lone star college campus. two people with guns shooting at each other after a dispute. and two other people caught in the cross fire. one gunman also injured. you can also see some of the victims rushing out on gurneys, being carried out. and our affiliate ktrk reported that students heard five to six shots. two people have been taken into custody, one student tweeted out this picture, students huddled in a classroom after the shots were fired. >>> and there's a big headline tonight about modern health. 43 million people are taking some kind of aspirin every day to prevent heart attacks and stroke

, but general allen was cleared by the pentagon investigator fors. the fact that the e-mails were sent by a joint account. there was a rush to judgment and i do think that jill kelley was vilified. but not to blame the victim and i want to preface it by saying not to plame the victim, but she could have saved herself a lot of heart ache and a lot of humiliation. it still boggles my mind that she didn't grant you this interview several months ago. in the absence of her side of the story, the media's going to run with the juicier, more salacious story because that's what sells papers. >> that is terrible advice, we're living in an era where the story will not disappear. so it's in your best interest to get the story out as quickly and as susinctly as possible. >> they couldn't really get any facts on her behalf. >> not to distract from the media here, but i do want to -- they had no know what was going to happen here. once someone's name gets out there, it's a juicy story. for a journalist, too often there's a mentality, where there's smoke, there's fire. >> those e-mails that jill kelly

. the pentagon ultimately found they were not inappropriate. the investigation was triggered as part of the david petraeus sex scandal. >> interesting. i remember from that scandal a few months ago, up to 30,000 pages of e-mails and documents from his communications with kelly between 2010 and 2012, but none of them have been made public. >> she was interviewed by howard curts recently. she says that is an exaggeration and there were about 300 e-mails. my question is, if you're in a military operation responsible for military operation, how do you have that much discretionary time to e-mail not your wife or your children, but sort of this socialite over 300 times? even 300 to me seems odd and inappropriate. but we don't know the content. >> right. we don't know. it habit -- hasn't been made public. i'm sure they would argue we're just friends and those were innocent the flirtatious e-mails. interesting scandal. >>> jerry sandusky is in fact facing a new lawsuit in connection with his child sex abuse case. a young man who testified against sandusky last year is suing him along with his charity and

was apparently wise. the pentagon last night issued a statement that allen had been cleared by a military inspector general. his nomination could be back on track soon. as for jill kelley, she and her husband call suggestions of an affair with allen painful and preposterous. kelley said that and other misleading junk reporting was emotionally exhausting and damaging to her family. kelley says her privacy was violated. she became a media target rather than a victim. george? >> she made a compelling case in that piece. okay, pierre, thanks very much. >>> george, now to a big backlash for prince harry overnight. the 28-year-old army captain under fire now for being so candid about life on the front lines in afghanistan. abc's lama hasan has been tracking the latest on the royal fallout for harry. >> reporter: first came the candor. now comes the backlash. this morning, there are new security fears for prince harry. the warrior prince, now a high-value target for the taliban, after admitting he killed enemy fighters in afghanistan. >> take a life to save a life. that's what we sort of revolve

's terrible. in "the washington post," the number of people working on s cybersecurity for the pentagon is going to increase fivefold. the department of defense's cyber command which mainly focuses on kpourt systems is going to increase to nearly 5,000 troops and civilians. the retooled program will include combat mission forces who may help military commanders by disabling an encommand and control system before a military attack. tell us about it, richard. >> both cyber defense and cyber offense. you speak to anyone in the military in the intelligence community, this is the first thing they talk about. it's an area of great advantage for us. look at the way we use computer viruses. we can organize information in ways that others can't. on the other hand, everything we do as a society, everything we do as a military is now based upon cyber. so we're both the best but also the most vulnerable ultimately. so the idea that we're throwing enormous resources at this, this is no coincidence. it's not a one-time thing. this is now the future. >>> from our parade of papers, "the kansas city sta
